OddQuest is an app where you discover bizarre and odd local hotspots and can take quick tours of places known for paranormal activity in your neighborhood. Go on a quest and explore abandoned places, haunted homes, areas of noted other worldly activity, and more.
Here are the wireframes for our App, OddQuest. OddQuest is an app for Urban Exploration where you can discover new and forgotten places and local urban folklore. It aggregates the info on the area you live in and displays this info to show you areas of interest. You can also take special routes that are no longer than an hour and organize these areas of interest according to topic, along with built in narration to help you follow along as you walk from one destination to the next. Our precedent for this idea was Forgotten-NY.com, a website that gathers user contributed content about forgotten architecture in the New York area, and Weird NJ/Weird US, another website that focuses on user contributed folklore
So there seems to be a general focus on iOS that for today’s MondayPlays, I wanted to focus on something a bit different. I have a Palm Pixi, so the app choices tend to be slim and outdated. The one app I do use often is the Weather Channel app. I just like the overall layout of it, and the fact that you can see overtime, how weather patterns change. But, since weather is an unpredictable beast, there’s more than one Weather app out there, especially for Palm OS. So I tried out the AccuWeather app to see how different it was.
This is the Weather Channel app (Screenshot provided by Mobile Top Soft).
Here are the screenshots for my app, Strange Eats. Some changes that were recommended were to rethink/add more screens to the “design your own recipe” option during prototyping, so I tried to fix that a little. I also implemented the “select a fridge” option, and added a switch that allows you to select whatever choices you prefer for your word pool.
Here’s some color wireframes and a flowchart for how I imagine my app, Strange Eats, to look like. Strange Eats is an app where the user can create their own custom dishes of unlikely pairings, utilizing the items they find in their fridge. They can check and see how long it takes to prep the item, as well as calories and fat count.
5 second meals -
My first idea was for an app that would allow the user to create a meal with the items they have in their fridge. Right now, I’m playing around with the name 5 second meals or “Strange Eats”. The app would allow the user to create unlikely pairings, such as a peanut butter and mayo sandwich. The app would give you suggestions based on what foods you type in. You can add in as many items as you want to your meal, such as Peanut Butter & Mayo with olives or grapes.
Clothes App -
I also wanted to create an app for fashionistas to be able to organize what outfits they wear throughout the week.
